{DAY 1} STAMPlorations Stamp Release Spotlight Week -- Hop with the STAMPlorations Girls and Guest Designer Darnell Knauss!


As we celebrate the release of the April stamps during the stamp spotlight week blog hop, all orders of at least $15 ship free worldwide until April 30! Use coupon code APRILHOP on checkout.

It's stamp release month again and we are back to showcase 5 new stamp sets! We hope you enjoy the parade of projects we have in store for you in the next 5 days as we put the spotlight on our fun new stamps.

The STAMPlorations girls have really outdone themselves in this release. I've got a front seat view and they floored me with their beautiful projects. I shouldn't be surprised anymore knowing what an amazingly talented team I have, but in every release (make that every project they make!), they manage to do just that. I'm incredibly blessed to have them playing and having fun with STAMPlorations stamps! :o)

This month's stamp release is made even more special because we have a super awesome and talented cardmaker as a guest designer joining us all week: Darnell Knauss. Squeal! We're all going to have a blast having Darnell. The cards she made for the hop are simply out-of-this-world amazing!

But before we introduce Darnell properly, let's get the deets of the hop out of the way:
  • FIVE (5) lucky hoppers will be randomly drawn from the designers' blogs to each win a $10 gift certificate to use in the shop.
  • FIVE (5) lucky hoppers will be randomly drawn from the STAMPlorations blog hop posts (Day 1 to Day 5) to each win 1 of the new stamp sets.
  • ONE (1) lucky hopper will be randomly drawn from the STAMPlorations blog to win a $25 gift certificate to use in the shop.
  • If you are picked as one of the winners, you have until Wednesday, May 6, to email us and claim your prize.

Today we're putting the spotlight on FOND EXPRESSIONS, a set with sentiments you can use for almost any occasion. I had fun designing this set with a hand-written, calligraphy feel.

Meet our guest designer: DARNELL KNAUSS


"My name is Darnell. I began my addiction in 2002 after attending my first Stampin' Up party. After ten years making cards for family and friends at a desk inside the disgusting garage, we had the backyard landscaped and I became the envied occupant of my crafty Playhouse. You are welcome to visit the Playhouse at my blog, djkardkreations.com. I am having the time of my life sharing my cards, playing with words, and connecting with delightful people from all over the world who provide me with endless inspiration and friendship!"

























Thanks for hopping along! Don't forget to comment on this post for the chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the shop! Check back again tomorrow at 7 a.m. PDT (GMT-7) for DAY TWO of the STAMPlorations Stamp Release Spotlight Week!

    1. Hi, Bozena. I replied to your email. We sold out of the SmallBirds stamp set but I've already ordered it from my manufacturer and new stock is on its way. You can still order the stamp set if you want to take advantage of our current free shipping promo for orders of at least $15 -- please just know that we will ship out your order once we have this stamp set in stock, and this may take a week or up to two weeks. Thanks!
